New Investigators Who Are Listening to the Spirit!

This week, boy where to start! This week was full of miracles!

Last Sunday we met a man named Chops, I felt I should give him a Restoration pamphlet but because of my lack of preparation, I only had one in my bag . . . my one from the MTC that had notes and scripture references in it along the side of the page. But I felt it was best to give it to him. So I wrote our number on the back and we said our goodbyes and walked away. Tuesday, we had a missed call so we listen to the voicemail and was Chops. He told us he wanted to meet. So we met. We shared the Restoration. It was a great lesson. We set up a return appointment, which ended up falling through but Chops called us Saturday and told us he had had a long day and wanted to meet so we met up and shared the next lesson. He told us he'd love to come to church. Sunday he came!!

Last Sunday, a man named Si came to church. Si has a friend who is Mormon. The friend lives in Loveland. Si went to church once with her but wasn't very open. Recently, he felt he should come again. So last week, he found the number online for our Bishop and called to see if it was okay that he come, Of course! At church, we met Si and he stayed the first two hours. And had to leave, but told us he wanted to take the lessons. So we got his number. Tuesday we taught the restoration. It was a great lesson. Although he didn't accept the baptismal invitation when setting him with a date, he did say he would be baptized when he knew. Si is a very nice younger man ( mid 30's).

Saturday, there were at lot of baptisms within the zone so we invited Si to the 3pm one. He told us he really enjoyed it. This week, we met with Susan and her boyfriend. It was a great lesson. So far we've just been going straight through the lessons. It has been wonderful. But for some reason Friday night I felt we should talk about temples and not whatever lesson we had planned. So we shared a Mormon message and some scriptures and talked about Temples.

The next day, we saw Susan at the activity and while her boyfriend was playing with the kids she told us of how they are trying to decide what to do in this relationship and of how Susan felt she shouldn't make any choices until they are in the temple together. And how they had just had this conversation after we left last week. She told me the spirit had to of directed that message. Because after they were
able to have such a great conversation. Things will work out for both of them. I just know it.
